CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- One person is in custody and one person is wanted by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police after a warrant service led to a brief SWATstandoff.

Wednesday morning, officers with CMPD's Violent Criminal Apprehension Team went to 5500 block of Albemarle Road to serve a warrant upon Fitzroy Williams, 24, for felony probation violation for absconding.
